    Great Place to work

    Field Based Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsDevelopment opportunities, Learning opportunities, Great Company Ambition, Great Employee Feedback

    I have enjoyed working for the company and am proud to be a part of the IHG Family. I think that we have a great ambition set out by our CEO that will help to carry us many years into the future. I look forward to working for the company for years to come.

    ConsWork Life Balance, can be the biggest con. We work to be operationally efficient but sometimes to the point of not being able to dedicate as much time as may be needed for each client. This is something that we continue to work on, our field teams are very focused on our franchisees and helping them succeed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to lead us in a direction that will help to build our company into the future. Help us continue to drive to have that ambition of being #1!!!!

    Once was a great company that appreciated people. Now it is all about the numbers.

    Communications Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsRich corporate culture (Winning Ways), most of management really cares about their people. Internal promotion.

    ConsCompany doesn't have much focus as we are trying to run too quickly and implement before we are ready. Too much focus on numbers and not necessarily quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to the basics. Stop hiring people who care more about the numbers and not much about service. Focus on really being #1 for our guests, owners and colleagues. Really pay attention to our Winning Ways and making sure that we are focusing on that AND Winning. Seems like Winning is the focus.
